Any TC can be a good drifter. You just need the right set up and tires, plenty of power.

The gear pitch doesn't make any difference on speed if that's what you were wondering . It just depends what ratio you would like to use. 48 pitch is generally a tad easier to achieve perfect gear mesh than 64 pitch, but it still depends what ratio you want and what will fit.

I'm sure you were not meaning to say mesh but ratio. 64P is just as easy to set mesh on as 48P the difference is that with the finer teeth you have more steps in selecting a ratio. 48P is a nice compromise between 32 and 64P and is more durable than 64P.

Find out what pitch your gears are. Or you can decide that you want to use say 48 pitch gears. You can put a 48 pitch spur gear on it and then buy some 48 pitch pinion gears. You can do the same with 64 pitch but the spur and pinion gear have to be the same pitch.

If you are getting a whole lot of punch but no speed go to a bigger pinion.
If you are getting a lot of speed but no punch then go smaller on the pinion.
If your motor is getting to hot to touch then go to a smaller pinion.

The pinion is the one that goes on the motor.
